I tailor my lessons to each student's age and needs. When I teach children I often base them on arts and crafts. I aim to help them define the concepts and the words through the images we draw, the crafts we create, or the games we play. I focus on creativity to engage the younger students.
When I teach teens or adults, I try to identify topics I know they might be interested in and build a lesson around them. Depending on their level of Spanish, I include the use of new vocabulary, explore an aspect of grammar they may not be familiar with, or both. I like to use different writing styles for them to learn new words and encourage them to use these to become more fluent speakers.
My name is Ana, a Spanish photojournalist with several years of experience in teaching Spanish. Especially with children.
Whilst my background is audiovisual communication, I have also been working in customer service and teaching Spanish since I moved to London in 2012.
I would love to show you how to improve your language skills teaching you Spanish as a native speaker. Whether it's learning how to order coffee or being able to communicate fluently in whatever context, I am here to help you.
Since I understand that we all have limited time and availability, I offer one-to-one classes that are tailored to your needs and interests, and I am always willing to adapt to any situation, schedule or location.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
All the best,

Perfect! I had a wonderful first lesson with Ana! I’m a language teacher myself and have rather high expectations. Ana not only helped me with my grammar and vocabulary, she encouraged me to change my register and delivery which enabled e to be more effective in work the very next day. She has a delightful, colourful personality and went out of her way to fit me in for our session. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.
Janine has a great level of spanish. We spent part of the lesson speaking about our life in London. Then, we focused on what she wants to improve.
She wants speak more fluent spanish in specific situations. We practiced that situations, she took notes about new vocabulary and expressions. I believe she is going to improve what she expect very easily.
I really enjoyed the lesson. We plan to meet 3 times per month.
Ana is a great Spanish tutor! I’m a complete beginner and my goal is to be able to speak and understand conversational Spanish. She is very light-hearted and optimistic, her lessons are great because it seems like you are talking to your friend, but you are also learning another language at the same time. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Spanish and likes fun and engaging classes!
Ana is very nice. I met her in 2014 by coincidence. I was interested in improving my level of spanish because I had to communicate in spanish at work. And she help me so much.
The lessons with Ana are dynamic. She also can help with grammar.
I highly recommend you to contact to her and meet to see how the lessons are. I am sure you will repeat and you will have lots of fun. She has a great sense of humor.
I have known Ana for over 5 years. She’s a hard-working person, committed to her customers, responsible, honest and trustworthy in every respect. Ana has a wonderful personality and always succeeds in finding ways to bring the best out of people. Ana has extensive experience working with children and has taught them Spanish using games, pictures, songs, stories, etc. As a retired MFL lecturer myself, with many years experience of teaching young and adult students in comprehensive schools and FE colleges, I am confident that Ana will be a great person to help adult students practise their Spanish conversation skills and will be able to help them clarify any questions they may have about grammatical points encountered in their practice.
I thoroughly recommend Ana Parma Mateo to any prospective learners of Spanish and I’m sure they will enjoy their classes with her.
She is a strong and cool woman, very professional and ready to teach anyone proper spanish lessons. Even with her, you can learn the spanish humor.
Ana was our au pair when our 4 children were young. She was so kind and caring with our children. She has fantastic patience with children of varying ages. She thought them spanish and as she made it fun they picked it up very quickly. I would highly recommend Ana as a tutor and would wish her the very best in all that she does.
